Boasting high contrast and dimensionality akin to specialized lenses, thanks to its exceptional optical design, this lens ensures spectacular resolution in every shot.

45mm is the New Gold Standard When it Comes to Field of View, Providing the 53 Degree Angle that Most Naturally Fits the Human Field of Vision

The Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE has been designed to provide the most suitable angle of view to imitate the natural human field of vision (53 degrees), and its design sets a new standard in lens craftsmanship. Freed from the design limitations of lenses for reflex cameras, and embracing the strengths of optical designs for mirrorless cameras, Samyang brings you a new breed of standard lens.

A New Era in Lens Design - A Lens Made Especially for Mirrorless Cameras

Invented in 1888, the Double Gauss lens design is still used today, but it is not ideal for mirrorless cameras, which is why Samyang has developed a new kind of lens that smoothes over many of the weaknesses of mirrorless cameras through cutting edge lens technology, while enhancing the high resolution offered by mirrorless cameras. So try the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE to experience the incredible resolution for which specialized prime lenses are known, and take advantage of the high pixel count of your mirrorless camera with its innovative lens design.

Delivering Closer, Clearer Pictures Even at a Close Focus Distance of 45cm

With a minimum focus distance of 45cm, the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE offers you a feeling of intimacy which is crucial to taking close up pictures of babies and pets. At only 0.162kg, the AF 45mm F1.8 FE is so light you can carry it with you anywhere and everywhere.

Achieve Beautiful Blurry Backgrounds with a Bright F1.8 Aperture

The bright aperture of the F1.8 allows many different expressions of photographic depth. A shallow depth of field provides the beautiful blurry background that highlights a subject and emphasizes its liveliness, while also providing a range of perspectives when portraying a variety of subjects like babies, pets, and food.

Weighing Only 0.162kg, It's a Perfect Lens for Small, Light, Mirrorless Cameras

This light, compact lens complements the strengths of mirrorless cameras. With 40 years of excellence in lens design, Samyang has created an optic that will give the photographer clear resolution without weighing them down.
